Phil's Broccoli Salad

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Irmgard

I got this recipe from Phil, my school's chief custodian. I am guessing at the number of servings as it would depend on the size of the heads of broccoli used. Phil says to cut up and wash the broccoli the day before preparing so that the broccoli is as dry as possible. I made it the same day I cut up the broccoli by putting the broccoli in my salad spinner.

I don't think I used the exact measurements, but most people don't when preparing 'to taste'. I added a little mayo to the coleslaw dressing and did not use the cranberries. Overall a super yummy dish!
